Idea of this documentary art work
The idea of this documentary art work is to place documentary footage into the audience’s augmented reality space. The documentary focuses on veterans’ voices; the footage features interviews of veterans, including homeless veterans. During these interviews the veterans share their military experience, the problems they faced when they were discharged, advice to current armed services members, etc.
Through the augmented reality and the documentary footage, the audience realizes that they are surrounded by various problems. However these problems are either not well known or they go unseen in their daily lives. Augmented Reality brings into focus these problems.
